Making the healthy choice the easy choice
Creating Healthy Communities (CHC) is committed to preventing and reducing chronic disease statewide. Through cross-sector collaboration, we are activating communities to: improve access to and affordability of healthy food; increase opportunities for physical activity; and assure tobacco-free living where Ohioans live, work, and play. By implementing sustainable, evidence-based strategies, CHC is creating a culture of health.
Creating Healthy Communities is funded by the Preventive Health and Health Services Block Grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and administered by the Ohio Department of Health, Bureau of Healthy Ohio, Creating Healthy Communities Program.
